Short length and narrow inner diameter makes Accel-X columns ideally suited for the high-speed separations commonly used in LC/MS. Near-zero-dead-volume fittings permit Accel-X columns to achieve high efficiency and excellent peak shape.
To take advantage of the high efficiency and high speed of the Accel-X LC/MS columns, it is essential to use 0.005” inner diameter capillary tubing between the injector / column and the column /detector (or LC/MS interface). This ensures minimal band broadening (sample dilution) for sharper, more efficient peaks and lower detection levels. Reducing the tubing volume (length and inner diameter) also maintains the integrity of fast gradients. Accel-X™ Columns can withstand pressures up to 15,000 psi (1,034 bar).
